The baseball grand prize includes 4 Tickets to the big game on March 31 and 4 tickets to the Red Cross Opening Day Party on March 31.
The Red Cross responds to nearly 70,000 disasters of all sizes big and small in this country every year. It provides 24-hour support to members of the military, veterans and their families – in war zones, military hospitals and on military installations around the world; collects and distributes about 40 percent of the nation’s blood supply and trains millions of people in first aid, water safety and other life-saving skills.
Here in the Southeast Michigan area, the Red Cross has responded to 1250 local emergencies, assisted 2500 military families and trained 64,000people in lifesaving skills. And, people from this area donated 173,000 units of blood.
